055 - Soorah ar-Rahmaan - (The Most Gracious) - [Madanee]
In the Name of Allâh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
[055:001] The Most Gracious (Allâh)!
[055:002] He has taught (you mankind) the Qur'ân (by His Mercy).
[055:003] He created man.
[055:004] He taught him eloquent speech.
[055:005] The sun and the moon run on their fixed courses (exactly) calculated with measured out stages for each (for reckoning).
[055:006] And the herbs (or stars) and the trees both prostrate themselves (to Allâh. See V.22:18). (Tafsir Ibn Kathir)
[055:007] And the heaven He has raised high, and He has set up the Balance.
[055:008] In order that you may not transgress (due) balance.
[055:009] And observe the weight with equity and do not make the balance deficient.
[055:010] And the earth He has put down (laid) for the creatures.
[055:011] Therein are fruits, date palms producing sheathed fruit stalks (enclosing dates).
[055:012] And also corn, with (its) leaves and stalk for fodder, and sweet-scented plants.
[055:013] Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinn and men) deny?
[055:014] He created man (Adam) from sounding clay like the clay of pottery.
[055:015] And the jinn He created from a smokeless flame of fire.
[055:016] Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinn and men) deny?
